Market, Farm and Belly

I hope all my Canadian friends enjoyed their day/days off last week and that my American friends had a great July 4th weekend!  I'm assuming a lot of you have the day off today!  ENJOY!

We had a great weekend!  A great market, visit from my brother, dinner with friends, warm, sunny weather.  It really doesn't get any better.

Here are the market shots.  This is what my table looks like at 7am.  As the morning goes on, I replenish what is bought until it runs out.

The market was a hit!  I had SOOO many beets to sell!  I can hardly believe I only have 3 more weeks left at the market this summer, and perhaps a bonus weekend or two in August.  Bittersweet.  I love this shot of the clean beets at home before wrapping/mixing them.
The Shepherd doesn't often come to visit at the market.  He does his own thing.  I'm a front line gal, he's a behind the scenes guy.  Here we are at the market sitting on the tailgate of the truck.

My brother and his fiance came to visit Saturday after the market and for the evening.  Mel is so sweet.  This is her Canada Day cake.  White cake and jello, cool whip and strawberries.
  So good, and so nice.
Here are shots of us all feeding/watering 5 of the dogs.  Happy dogs.

The Shepherd and I. :)
This is my squinty-eyed belly shot of 25 weeks.  I feel like I'm doing pretty well! 
Yesterday's highlight was wild raspberry picking!  I managed to find 2 pints around the farm.  Red and black berries.  So tasty. Really small, really good.  I had to stop myself from eating them all as I was picking.
Looks like it's going to be a hot hot hot week!  I love it.
Enjoy every day.
